Synopsis / Plot
At the outset of the first episode, the hero of the series, Kevin Keene, a teenager from the Northridge neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, and his dog, Duke, are summoned to another universe known as Videoland by being sucked into a vortex that formed in his television, called the Ultimate Warp Zone. In order to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Kevin is destined to become the hero "Captain N: The Game Master" and save Videoland from evil forces, which are led by Mother Brain from the floating world/fortress called Metroid. By the time Kevin arrives on the scene, Mother Brain has almost succeeded in capturing the Palace of Power and conquering all Videoland. Kevin and Duke appear suddenly on the other side of the Ultimate Warp Zone before the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana, Simon Belmont, Mega Man, and Kid Icarus, none of whom show any confidence in Kevin's ability in the beginning. After Lana is kidnapped by the enemy shortly after Kevin's arrival, the reluctant group puts their differences aside to go on a rescue mission where Kevin eventually gains the others' confidence.

In most episodes, the N Team's enemy is a group of video game villains usually led by the boisterous and loud Mother Brain, who is accompanied by her minions: the sheepish Eggplant Wizard, the thuggish King Hippo, and the scheming Dr. Wily. A 'villain of the week' is featured in some episodes when a particular video game becomes the setting. Donkey Kong also makes an appearance as a territorial, belligerent, Godzilla-sized gorilla in some episodes, but usually serves as a dangerous neutral character posing a hazard to friend and foe alike. The focus of the show is mostly action-adventure sourced from the video games they parody, with comedic relief forming in the characters' interactions with one another and the environment. Sometimes, humor also stems from the comparatively loose interpretations of the laws of reality that apply in Videoland.
